In Their Words

Dont' just take our word for it. Here's what our customers have to say about us!

Phillip Branson | Director of Real Estate & Facilities
Morrie's Automotive Group

“Our ask was ambitious: Help us meet our requirement for solar at the 11th hour after being let down by another installer. Despite the looming deadline, iDEAL Energies quickly and professionally executed a comprehensive solution that made financial sense. iDEAL Energies went above and beyond, and I unreservedly recommend them for your next solar project.”

Jason Krell

“iDEAL's extensive experience was evident in their seamless and professional process, from the initial sales call through construction. Now I know why they're considered Minnesota's Premier Commercial Solar Developer. ”

Craig Schlichting, PE | Director of Community Assets & Development
City of New Brighton

“iDEAL Energies worked with the City to evaluate our existing buildings for on-site solar. We installed solar arrays on our Community Center, Public Works, Water Treatment and Public Safety buildings. They made it easy for us to meet our renewable energy goals, and I would recommend other Cities work with iDEAL Energies!”

Jason Mutzenberger | Executive Director of Business Services
Eden Prairie School District

“iDEAL Energies made things easy for me and our District...With no capital expenditures on our part, iDEAL custom tailored a solution to meet our special requirements, executed on it professionally, and generated immediate and sustainable savings. They even developed a classroom-ready education module for our kids. I can’t recommend iDEAL Energies highly enough.”

Neil Garlock | Mayor
City of Mendota Heights

“To preserve the City of Mendota Height’s environmental beauty & realize long-term utility cost savings, we installed solar arrays with iDEAL Energies on four city buildings. Today they provide 57% of the power for City Hall and are projected to save over $1 million for the city over the life of the solar arrays.”

Tim Wald | Asst Superintendent for Finance & Operations
White Bear Lake Area Schools

While first exploring solar we met with several solar providers, each time feeling a bit overwhelmed and unsure of the practicality for our schools and financial commitment and benefit. iDEAL Energies has proven to be the provider that could meet all of the needs of the district with no financial investment while decreasing our monthly energy costs...

Michael Meyers | Warehouse Project Manager
